Lattice on a Blue Sky


When Joen Wolfrom came to town, I had to take the classes offered. One of them was about designing blocks by taking classics apart and putting them back together in a different way. This class included how to use elements from the blocks to design a border. For me, who discovered late in life that I really do love geometry, this was enormous fun.

A second class was about combining ordinary blocks to make secondary patterns. I enjoyed this one too, and the picture is a small quilt that I made as a result. I called it Lattice on a Blue Sky because that is sort of what it looks like, but then if you close your eyes a bit, the blue looks like a design on a yellow background. Joen is a soft-spoken, lovely lady. Take a class from her, if the opportunity comes. It will not be regretted!

I have never taken a class from Joen but I have most of the books she has written. Pepper Cory gave us a workshop on the secondary patterns theory in 1986 and it really was fun. Your quilt is very pretty, nice constrast with the colors.
